Ramadan marks the start of many things, amongst which could include the start of someone’s entire acting career. Since Ramadan is almost over, we’ve noticed that (unsurprisingly) the talented individuals that have been under the spotlight this year are mostly actresses. Women are beginning to rule the world and the world of Mosalsalat nonetheless. So many television performances have stunned us, so here are the uprising stars that you’ll definitely want to remember their names for the future.


1) Aicha Ben Ahmed

Laila in “Nisr Al Saeed” and Om Abi  in “Al Seham Al Mareka”this Tunisian beauty starred in one of the most talked about shows this Ramadan and she’s proven to be more than just beautiful eyes. Aïcha showed tons of range in the show, making audiences laugh and cry.

Make sure to keep an eye out for this beauty, as she will become one of the biggest names by the end of the year, if not already! Her performance was remarkable and the show wouldn’t have been the same without her. This year she got her chance to shine alongside Mohamed Ramadan which we consider her breakout role with her powerful and courageous performance. Aisha is quickly becoming one of Egypt’s newest stars who will dominate the big and small screen for a long time to come.

2) Carmen Bsaibes

This gorgeous Lebanese actress stunned everyone with her elegance and sophistication in Layaly Eugenie. She managed to play her part so effortlessly and gave a powerful performance as the show’s protagonist, Aïda. Not many actors can go toe to toe with the uber-charming, super-talented Dhafer L’Abidine, but then again, Carmen doesn’t seem to be like other actors. The chemistry between the two of them was evident from the first scene in the first episode, and she quickly became a fan favorite. Carmen is not rushing into anything yet but giving herself time to grow as a super star. However, the sky is the limit and she’ll be a leading lady and an Arab Super Star in no time.

3) Hind Abdulhalim

Anyone who stars alongside Adel El Emam is bound to find success but Hind’s charisma and talent makes all the buzz she’s getting completely worth it. Her powerful and courageous role in “Awalem Khafeya ” made her truly stand out,  showed a different side of her and proved Hend is not afraid to put herself out there and take any role. We believe that Hend’s rise has only just begun and we can’t wait to see what she’ll do next.

4) Asma Abul Yazeid

Well known for her stunning photo shoot that went viral on social media, this young star’s talent stole the show this Ramadan with her role Galila in “Layaly Eugenie”  alongside stars Amina Khalil and Dhafer L’Abidine. Besides acting, Asma also models and sings, truly proving herself as a force to be reckoned with.

5) Sara Nour

The youngest actress on our list, Sara’s role as Adel Emam’s grandchild in Awalem Khafeya definitely impressed us. Her role devastated viewers with an honest and brutal look into teenage life and dilemmas. When you factor in, that this was her first professional “big” acting role, it’s hard to deny her talent. Add to that performing in front of Adel Emam, Egyptian legendary actor, and Sara Nour is undeniably a name to keep an eye on.

6) Hager Ahmed

Hager caught people’s attention with her stellar performance and she was lucky enough with her significant role, Hind, in Ramadan’s Hit “Nisr Al Saeed” seen by a wide audience thanks to Mohamed Ramadan, as well as her hilarious role in “Rob3 Roumi” performing with a hilarious Trio, Moustafa Khater, Mohamed Sallam & Mirna Gamil where she showed off her comedy chops.

8) Mirna Gamil

Enjoy the little things 😊

Mirna had an impressive 2017 run and is probably most recognized as the hilarious charming girl alongside stars like Mido & Mohamed Ramadan in SNL Arabia. She not only showcased her funny side this Ramdan, but showed glimpses of the performances she could deliver if given meatier roles in more dramatic productions.

9) Huda Al Mufti

Hana Aslan, in Ladayna Akwal Okhra alongside all time Diva, Yousra, and the most handsome, Ahmed Hatem. At only 20 years old, Huda El Mufti quickly became a fan favorite, starting as a model, social media influencer and finally a lovely actress. Even though her roles in ‘Akwal Okhra and Ka2eno Embareh were great and she was perfect in them, they weren’t seen by the biggest audience because of airing channels and timing. She came off as a natural in every scene and oozed charisma. Considering she instantly became a fan favorite that fans want to see her own movie, more eyes are on her as she shines in every role

10) Mariam El Khosht

Last but not least, Mariam who became a familiar face to Ramadan Drama lovers last year when she had a small role in La Totfe2 El Shams. She upped her game this year and proved herself worthy of the stardom title with her roles alongside Amina Khalil in Layaly Eugenie and Amir Karara in Kalabsh 2. We’re waiting to see more of her in the future, hopefully on a bigger screen.
